Founded by Gabriel Garber and Joshua Morrow as a duo in 2004, Impure Jazz has taken many forms in the years since. In late Spring 2006, the two decided to part ways to pursue solo projects. After a hiatus of about a year and a half, Garber and Morrow decided to rejoin forces in the Fall of 2007, this time enlisting the services of Adam Goode on bass guitar. With Goode providing a stabilizing third leg, Impure Jazz caught on quickly in the Bloomington music scene, playing several shows a month, including Bloomington's Culture Shock Festival. They will be featured on IU's "Live From Bloomington 2009" compilation along with 19 other local groups. In the spring of 2008 the band recorded a 4-song demo. The demo contains "Pre-Fluffin' A Muffin (Fluffin' It Up)," "7891011," "Section II," and "Byting The LAN That Seedz." In late May, Impure Jazz departed on their first ever tour, playing in New York, Vermont, Washington DC, North Carolina, Michigan, and Indiana. The band has opened for national acts Dosh, Marnie Stern, and Lymbyc Systym, as well as Britain's School Of Language. Impure Jazz just released their first studio effort, a 6-track EP containing new versions of their demo tracks along with two new songs "Huckleberry Tots" and "Ace Of Base." The EP is called IJ: I, and is available now. They will be embarking on a national tour in support of IJ: I on May 8.
